Unreleased Sega Saturn Game 'ARMED' Surfaces On eBay


I won't lie - I'd never heard of ARMED before I saw this news. However, it looks like another prototype game for Sega's underrated 32-bit machine has popped up on eBay. ARMED appears to have been in development in the mid 1990s and was a side-scrolling shooter in the vein of 3DO title Phoenix 3; but featuring pre-rendered visuals and a more cartoonish science fiction setting in place of the digitised graphics seen in Studio 3DO's game.

According to the eBay auction, this pre-production version of ARMED (from Point of View and Interplay) is fully playable but is missing cut scenes and music in places. The seller has also included a helpful scan of a magazine article previewing the game back when it was in development.


ARMED is currently listed on eBay with a price tag of $2,500 so it is quite possibly out of the price range of the average collector. However, if you have the funds, now's your chance to grab a more obscure slice of Sega Saturn history.

A true connoisseur of failed and obscure console hardware, if Tom isn't extolling the virtues of the Jaguar CD's texture smoothing abilities or the Dreamcast's vast array of useless peripherals he's usually on Twitter asking where all the Super A'Can games are.
